OIL/WATER USFA TYPE SEPARATING UNITS

SCOPE OF APPLICATION
The USFA type separating units (the automatic filtering separating unit) developed and manufactured by the UkrNIIMF have a certificate of type approval of international pattern, which allows to use them on river and sea-going vessels operating on international shipping lines where the quality of oily water cleaning is required to be up to norms established International convention MARPOL-73/78 for the special areas. Besides these units have been successfully employed for cleaning oily production discharges from industrial enterprises.

OPERATIONAL EXPERIE
More than a 20-year experience of production and operation of the units in vessels of merchant marine under severe shipboard conditions (heaving, vibration, higher humidity, etc.) has confirmed stable high-quality separation; guaranteed reliability of operation of special devices and systems that ensure full automatic operation of the separation process (automatic starting and stopping, discharge of the separated products, periodical regeneration of filtering material).
The experience of operating these units has shown that the actual mean oil content of the separated water amounts to about 1-2 ppm and the service life of filtering material is more than 10000 hours.
DESIGN FEATURES
The filtering material specific properties combined with its periodical regeneration (back flushing) ensure practically unlimited service life and guarantee stable quality of separation.
The USFA type separating units are true to the world's best types and on some parameters surpass them. The technical solutions used in the design of the units have been protected by Author's certificates.
All of the separating units possess the Russian Register of Shipping certificates and have been approved by ecological regulatory bodies of Ukraine and Russia.

SEPARATING UNIT SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM

SELF-CONTAINED SEPARATION COMPLEXES
The USFA type units can be manufactured and delivered as self-contained separation complexes [SSC], mounted inside 20' containers
Maximum throughput capacity of SSC - 20 cu.m/h.
High level of automation of the cleaning process ensures minimum operational costs (servicing personnel -I man). The SSC can be delivered to its place of destination by craft, a trailer, helicopter or rail-way platform.
Typical cases of using the SSCs where they can appear the only means of prevention (reduction) of the environmental pollution and the related damages are as follows:
1) the need to equip an oily water recovery vessel with a separating unit with minimum costs and without removing her from service;
2)  the need to clean wash water resulting from washing ship fuel tanks when a cleaning station and other specially designed for this purpose means are absent
3)  the need to clean oily water resulting from washing oil storage tanks;
The SSC is an indispensible means of cleaning oily water generated on locations for washing road, rail way and other equipment (motor vehicle enterprises, stations of technical service, rail way car sheds, repair shops, etc.).
The SSC will fit nicely into any water cleaning process adopted at industrial enterprises and individual shops.
